I think its somewhat important. I'm mean if you hate the way it looks your not going to be completely happy with it, but its far from "everything." I couldn't even look at some of the 80's color boards.

Over the years there has been a board or two I have pondered cause they were right size, flex, price...but had to pass on due to graphic.

Here are a couple that i could not ride...but if anyone else can, go for it. Guess i am too old...

Very important, I wouldn't buy a board if I didn't like the graphics. Wait till next year.

Ugly as fuck. I wouldn't change boards over mediocre graphics, but that's hideous.

Actually I have always wanted to order a custom board with no graphics ...... and people will wonder where I got it from.

I actually hate most board graphics. They're usually either way over the top, colorwise, or look like a child or someone wasted drew them. So it comes down to if it's just too damn ugly or ridiculous to be seen with. (btw, I'd didn't think the ladies choice was that bad. If I was a girl, and loved the specs, I'd probably ride it. Seen much worse)

I reckon a board without any graphics is even more unique, especially if the rider is hands down awesome. It adds an element of mystique.

Not that much, but enough for me to love a couple of boards.

- 2006 burton custom, custom X
- 2007 jussi pro model, dominant
- Lobster boards are hideous, but who cares?

Not at all important for me. When I ride, I never look at my board and stare at the top sheet, so top sheet graphics doesn't matter at all. I bought my board based on performance, not on top sheet design.

About the only time anyone can see the graphics on my board is when I'm at the lodge and the board is on the racks, so what goes on outside the lodge isn't really my concern, nor should it be. What do I care for how a 13 year old thinks of my board when I'm chowing down a pizza?
